For those who came in late, the Chromebook is a netbook for those who just want to browse and send email. It runs Google’s Chrome operating system. HP’s version has a better screen than the likes of Samsung’s effort in the market. It is only 1,366x768-pixel, 11.6-inch display, but has brighter and clearer IPS tech.
Under the bonnet is a 1.7GHz mobile processor, 2GB of RAM and just 16GB of storage. But the big idea is that you are supposed to shove all that data on Google’s NSA friendly cloud anyway. The Chromebook is more for interacting with the net.
